It’s been lurking there for the past week now. I wish it would just show itself or even better, get lost!
It’s the sore throat, the sniffles and that kind of spontaneous splutter which I’m ashamed to call a cough.
My logic is this:
To get rid of a cold you need natural remedies, a good old wives tale soloution, like ginger.
You must also feed a cold.
There wasn’t really another option that popped out at me, other than gingerbread biscuits.
So delicious your forget your ailments!
This recipe is my Grandmas, so now I understand why she never gets a cold!
You will need:
12 oz plain flour
4 oz butter, room temp and cubed
6 oz brown sugar
4 tblspn syrup
2 tablspn milk
2 tsp ground ginger
In a bowl, rub the flour, ginger and butter together until you get a fine mix. Add in the brown sugar and run through your fingers again.
In a seperate bowl/cup, whisk the egg, syrup and milk together.
Add in to the dry ingredients and mix until you have a dough. I used a wooden spoon to almost fold everything together and then continued using my hands to form a good dough.
On a lightly floured surface, knead slightly until it’s smooth.
I always cut the dough in half and roll out separately because this recipe makes quite a lot! I know, I know, as if greedy guts over here is really thinking about how much there is!
Once rolled to about half a cm thick, cut out your shapes and place on a tray with baking paper and cook for about 12 minutes at 190 degrees.
I cut mine in to hearts. Start from the heart and everything else will fall in to place!
